School Gear Obsession!

I am so thankful that I have had this week off work to spend with Kalli and Kole. I have tackled a lot of sewing projects this week. I'm definitely sad the week is half over. But that's a negative way of thinking. I should say I am HAPPY that I have 4 days left to get more done! That sounds better!

Of course some of my sewing projects have been for Kalli since the school year is quickly approaching. She asks everyday, "How many days until school starts?" She is so excited. Tomorrow we get to meet her teacher, Ms. Currie. After a little research I was told she is a new teacher but was a great sub last year. That's good news. While I usually like seasoned teachers, new teachers bring new ideas.

Here is a little sneak peak into what Kalli gets to take to school on Monday! She has a new messenger bag (not yet finished), a pencil bag (pictured), and a matching shirt (being embroidered). I will give you the complete look when everything is finished. Meanwhile, here is the pencil case. It certainly isn't perfect. I tend to not follow sewing directions well and make things up as I go. This was also my first attempt at putting a zipper in. But I think she'll forgive me!

I'm thinking of attempting a matching lunch bag, and reusable snack packs. Is there anything else you can think of that would complete the obsession with matching school items?
